Click x 2

So apparently all I have to do is confess my Kindle clicking problem on my blog and my obsession with the Buy Now With One Click goes away... or not.  I might have only purchased two books this week for my Kindle, but I purchased 3 real books (the kind you can hold in your hot little hands) this week, too.

First up: iDrakula by Bekka Black: 

Forever a fan of Dracula (you can read my review here), I was intrigued by this book after reading some tweets.  Having read the journal entries and letters in the original account of the the Count I'm really looking forward to getting the story via emails, text messages, twitter feed and instant messaging. Since we all know I'm a lover of tweeting this should be fun for me. =)


The classic vampire story that started it all gets new life for a generation of connected teens. 18-year-old Jonathan Harker is diagnosed with a rare blood disorder after visiting a Romanian Count. His girlfriend Mina and a pre-med student named Van Helsing team up to investigate the source of the disease. The teenagers discover a horrifying truth: the Count is a vampire. The harrowing events unfold through emails, text messages, web pages, Twitter feeds, and instant messaging-the natural modernization of Bram Stoker's original Dracula, which was written in letters, diary entries, and news clippings.

An Example:

"What happened?"

"Not sure. I was fine when I went to bed."


"But I dreamed that someone got into my room."


"I don't remember his face. He was tall, thin, pale...I was paralyzed. And then my neck hurt and my mouth was full of..."

"Of what?"

"Blood. My mouth was full of blood."

Next on the list is Cursed by Jeremy C. Shipp


Your life is no longer recognizable, every detail corrupted by unknown forces. The harder you struggle, the more you suffer. Your words mean nothing, your actions backfire, and one by one everybody you know is sucked down with you.

You are:

1) Nick

2) cursed

3) afraid all the time

That's because: a) someone or b) something is after you with a vengeance. Even with the help of other cursed people, you don't stand a chance because you're all, you know, cursed. That means you and everyone you know will:

1) suffer

2) die

3) amuse your tormentor

That is, unless you figure out how to manipulate the person behind this and turn their power against them. Check your list a second time because they're probably on it. The only thing left to do is scratch them off.
